A few weeks ago I had a fun opportunity to join Cityline and President’s Choice in Wofville, NS during our annual Apple Blossom Festival to enjoy a family style meal.
This took place as part of the President’s Choice #EatTogether campaign encouraging Canadians to bring their meals back to the dinning room table and connecting with one another over food.
The campaign launched back in the winter, and I’ve mentioned it a few times (most recently in my post on Monday), so it was really fun to be invited to this event. Not only because for once something was happening near my own home, but also because it’s an initiative I believe in and am happy to help promote it anyway I can.
Unfortunately, it was a rainy day, which didn’t matter so much for our event as it was inside, but was disappointing as it was also the day for the Grand Street Parade. I picked up my friend Catherine who was attending with me and headed into Wolfville excited to see what good food they had in store for us, to meet up with some of my blogger friends who would also be there, and of course to meet Tracy Moore from CityLine.
Everyone was super nice, and we got to talk with both Tracy and PC Executive Chef Tom Filippou before the meal and filming started.
The #EatTogether team had set up beautiful place setting and people from the community were invited in to join the meal, talk with both Tracy and Tom, and have the chance to be filmed.
The food was amazing, and it was really fun to get to talk with everyone and enjoy a meal together in a community setting. It truly embodied the “EatTogether theme!
As we ate they filmed us talking with Tracy, and after 10-15 minutes both Tracy and Tom were moved down the long table to talk with community members to bring together their video segment.
After the meal, both Tom and Tracy were available to answer questions and take photos which was really nice – especially for those people who came and may not have got the chance to join in on the meal.
Overall it was an awesome experience, one I’ve been waiting to talk about until the video came out – which it did this week.
Prepare yourself for some Suzi eye rolling around the 30 second mark, haha.

Eat Together Day
President’s Choice #EatTogether campaign is not yet over, and in fact, next week they are encouraging Canadians to come together to celebrate Eat Together Day on June 29. To participate, all you need to do is make an effort to #EatTogether, and if you want, snap a few pictures and post on social media tagging @preschoice @PCEatTogether and using the #EatTogether hashtag.
Let’s encourage everyone to slow down and spend time enjoying food with loved ones – everyday – but especially June 29th.
